Newco place all bets on null and void


Yesterday’s extraordinary outburst by Newco chairman (and bus provider to Celtic) Douglas Park, calling for the suspension of SPFL chief exec Neil Doncaster, and solicitor, Rod McKenzie looks like achieving nothing more than making the most bitter people in the land even more acutely afflicted.  Dundee failed to get their vote through on time, then asked the SPFL for time to reconsider their decision.

Be under no illusion, Newco’s objective, is not to finish the season on the field of play, it is to have the entire league campaign scrubbed from the record books.  They failed to win the League Cup Final, lost to Hearts in the Scottish Cup and fell apart in the league after the winter break.  They do not want Celtic to win the league if the season is called now and they do not want the season continued into what should be next season’s calendar.

They cannot stop Celtic on the field of play so they want to try to do so through a scorched earth policy that could burn the Scottish game to the ground.  No one knows more than Douglas Park what lies ahead for Newco, bringing the entire edifice of the game in Scotland down with them, may make the pill less bitter.

This is a dysfunctional football club that is using its significant media influence in an attempt to subvert the football authorities.  The country has enough paranoid fans prepared to fantasise like this, we cannot have our game controlled in this manner.  We cannot have our game hijacked by a dysfunctional club that survives on media influence and has never make an operational profit in its existence.

  1. Sevco have two weeks to submit their accounts to acquire a UEFA license for next season. Should be interesting.

  2. Would’ve been a much more profound and accurate video if he didn’t include Australia imo. Covid-19 stats here are considerably better than scores of countries the world over, UK and US are struggling badly.



    Agree with his view that we need an entirely different system by which we organise ouselves as a populace, had this viewpoint for quite a few years now.

    Well ,of course he does.


    The people never have and never would elect his leftist mob .


    How many of the Chinese people voted for Xi Jinping , General Secretary of the Communist Party of China ? China being the source of the pandemic


    That`s right.

    But he`s president for life.

    Don`t know.


    But we know who were the first to abolish it.



    William Wilberforce © Wilberforce was a deeply religious English member of parliament and social reformer who was very influential in the abolition of the slave trade and eventually slavery itself in the British empire.

  11. onenightinlisbonso right not a lot of celtic take the pepil that run the huns and those that supoort them are horible pepil pity that peter and jimmy marr are not in charge of dundee big tims and rebels as well hail hail





    Yes indeed there is a huge statue of him a mile from my house.



    As for we were first to stop it was it not a case of we have got plenty here lets stop anyone else getting any.



    We have raped all these countries and had a great time so lets stop now and not let anyone else do it.



    1970 world cup PADDY CRERAND said to JACK CHARLTON “thats like a man who steals a million pound from a bank and then wants to be respectable”

    Has it not already been stated that their accounts submission this year would impact on their Euro licence in 2021?



    It seems that they want the money but also want null and void. Possibly Dundee are the only other club holding that position. The SPFL are holding firm on the no completion, no prize money line. If they were to release prize money before completion, then null and void pandoras box is well and truly open.



    Journalists like Ewan Murray and Michael Stewart are doing Budge’s work by pushing for the release of the prize money because they are both blinded by Hearts affiliations. The most important line in McLennan’s letter yesterday was holding firm on that position.

  21. Rangers knowingly, deliberately and systematically cheated in over 400 games and over more than ten years denying celtic and other clubs out of honestly won trophies and the celtic board have said and done nothing.


    Celtic are13 points ahead with 8 games to go, notwithstanding sevco’s game in hand, and with sevco in freefall since the winter break. The sevco board are now calling for the suspension of the spfl chief executive and an investigation into the league body’s handling of the members ballot.


    Sevco clearly want the league called null and void and the prize money handed out immediately. What rangers/sevco want they usually get.


    If the league is called null and void don’t hold your breath for any complaint from the celtic board.


    Take a bow peter lawell and the celtic board. What a bunch of cowards.
